Jewish Wedding in Connecticut

It’s rare to see a wedding that so perfectly combines blinged out shoes, crystals and feathers with pure, understated tradition. And we’re loving the results! The Jewish wedding of  Melissa Enson & Jonathan Watchman took place in charming, colonial Connecticut, with a reception at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale. Photography by Heartpprint Photography.

Jewish Wedding Dress, Shoes, White Bouquet

Melissa was a bride with traditional tastes. Everything about her style from her flowing floral appliqued gown to her lace trim veil was feminine, classic, and lovely.  The beautiful bride kept the look fresh and modern with sparkling Swarovski beaded shoes and a feathered bouquet.
